Free Video Editors

You Need a Video

Every company that has a website should also have video. This is an overview of some of the free video editors that are available if you’re interested in editing your own video rather than hiring a professional video production company.

Not only can video help your clients see what you do and the services you provide, it can also help boost your ranking on Google above your competition. For those who are too busy to read the text on your website, a video gives potential clients a great personal snapshot of you.

What Kind of Video?

There are many types of videos you can put on your website:

  • A Company Profile Video – tells the world who you are and what you do

  • A Product Video – showcases each of the products you create or sell

  • A Training Video or Tutorial Video – shows your clients, sales team or employees how to get the most out of using your product or how to work more effectively at their job. You can also create a simple training video demonstration to give new clients and employees tutorials on the user interface they’ll need to use to order goods or services, operate machinery, or input information into your system.

  • An Event Video – documents a conference, a presentation, or other event that you can post to clients and followers of your blog, share with people within your firm who weren’t able to attend, or simply preserve the moment and its message to archive as your company grows.

OpenShot

OpenShot is a free video editing software program that is highly rated and is reported easier to use than many others in its class.

DaVinci Resolve allows editors to edit up to UHD (almost 4K) videos with no watermark. It’s a perfect solution for a free program that can yield very high-end results.

Hiring a Professional Video Production Company

Warning: video editing is very labor intensive, even for a professional, and also requires some robust processing power from your computer. So, when budget allows, turning the process over to people who do this type of work every day is likely to save a great deal of time and stress.

When you hire a professional editor, not only are you getting the services of someone to get the job done but also the expertise that they bring to your project that will make the finished product look its best. That reflects well on you and your brand. Projects are completed faster and look – well, more professional.

At Crushpix, our top three video editors have over 10 years of daily editing experience. With time spent learning and practicing comes greater skill.
